ghost sonata


By August Strindberg

Directed by Carol Cooley

October 22 - 26 at 7:30 pm
October 27 at 2 pm

Center Stage, Performing Arts Center

Ghosts, vampires, and mummies serve as dark metaphors for a decaying humanity in August Strindberg's 1907 exploration of familial guilt and social retribution. One of Strindberg's most challenging pieces, Ghost Sonata heralded the 20th Century theatrical avant-garde movement with its free intermingling of dream with reality and radical transformations of time and space.


This production will be performed promenade style, with the audience moving through various locations and configurations around and on the PAC Center Stage. Portions of the production will not be wheelchair accessible. For wheelchair accommodations and other ADA concerns, please contact the department office at 320-308-3229 prior to the performance. Seating will be limited. There will be no late seating.


stop kiss


By Diana Son

Directed by Vladimir Rovinsky

November 19 - 23 at 7:30 pm
November 24 at 2 pm

Arena Stage, Performing Arts Center

Two young women spend a quiet evening together talking about their boyfriends and life. But an unexpected kiss leads to devastating violence and an astonishing chain of events is set into motion. For our current global society, which can alternately legalize and criminalize love, Stop Kiss serves as both a valentine and a warning; powerfully addressing love, hatred, and the difficulties of living life fully.

how I learned


By Paula Vogel

Directed by Brenda Wentworth

February 25 - March 1 at 7:30 pm
March 2 at 2 pm

Arena Stage, Performing Arts Center

Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, How I Learned to Drive has been described as a funny, poignant, and ultimately humane look at the complex and disturbing relationship between an adolescent girl and her uncle. In this stylistically unique play, we become part of a woman's memory as she learns the rules of the road, love, and adulthood from behind the wheel.

"South Park" meets "Sesame Street" in this irreverent (and educational!) musical glimpse into life after college.
